MN-Gov: New Poll Gives Tim Walz (D) A 9 Point Lead Over Jeff Johnson (R)

1 min read

Some great news over the weekend out of Minnesota:

Democrat Tim Walz has a clear lead over Republican Jeff Johnson in the race to be Minnesota's next governor.

But with fewer than two months until the election, a sizable percentage remain undecided and unfamiliar with both candidates, according to a new MPR News/Star Tribune Minnesota Poll.

Of 800 registered voters statewide who participated in the poll conducted by Mason-Dixon Polling and Strategy, 45 percent said they support Walz, a six-term congressman from southern Minnesota, while 36 percent said they would like to see Johnson, a Hennepin County commissioner, become the next governor.

It's a notable 9-point advantage for Walz, though 16 percent of voters polled said they are still undecided about who they will vote for this fall, and 3 percent said they support another candidate entirely heading toward the Nov. 6 election.

The Walz-Johnson numbers are striking when it comes to the support of Minnesota women. While men are split evenly at 40 percent, Walz holds a substantial advantage over Johnson with women — 50 percent to 32 percent.

Let’s keep up the momentum and hold onto the Governorship. Click here to donate and get involved the DFL ticket’s campaign.
